Greenpeace, Energiaklub seek for NPP Paks upgrade environmental permit annulment – Hungary, 24 May 2017

Hungarian environmental organizations Greenpeace Magyarorszag and Energiaklub said that they have asked the court to withdraw the environmental protection permit awarded for the planned upgrade of the country’s sole nuclear power plant Paks.
The two organizations said that the Pest County Government Office had turned down their earlier appeal against the project’s environmental permit, but they insist that a number of crucial issues around the planned project, such as the handling of radioactive waste and protecting residents, as well as contingency plans for acts of terrorism, sabotage or war were still unresolved. They also suggested that there were no guarantees that the plant, complete with two new blocks, would not overheat the Danube river, whose water is used in the plant’s cooling system. The permit also fails to address a number of questions sufficiently, such as the management of radioactive waste and spent fuel rods. The environmental protection permit for the upgrade of NPP Paks came into force in March 2017.
